The International Symposium on Online Journalism is an annual conference that attracts editors, producers, media executives and scholars from around the world who convene at the University of Texas at Austin to discuss the evolution of online journalism. ISOJ started in 1999 and has grown throughout the years to become a unique international conference that serves as a barometer for the state of online journalism globally. In 2020 and 2021 ISOJ was held online only because of the pandemic, but in 2022 it returned to the UT campus in a hybrid format that also allows active participation of remote attendees.
